Hi...
Not posted on the site for a long while. Eight weeks ago after a massive flare up, have gave in and decided to try anti depressants. It was that or sick leave. I'm suffering with a few side effects as usual medications for side effects, but coping better as i can manage pain, I'm in the process of reducing gabapentin and stopped antibiotics that helped acne rosacea,which I'm sure the gabapentin started in the first place...

As from yesterday highly likely diagnosed with glaucoma, so I'm due to see gp on friday ...is there any meds like duloxetine i am happy as this has not made me gain weight..... In the past i have taken amitriptyline and I could not function, so very wary of taking antidepressants but it's a necessity..... Thank you for taking time out to read. Take care and best wishes Mand x

Sorry you are having a bad turn. I've found Duloxetene the more effective drug with the least side effects, but it affects people differently.
